I wish I had taken my proper camera backstage at Louise Goldin, the truth is it was so hectic backstage that I wouldn’t have had a moment to get it out of my bag anyway! Luckily my phone was on hand so I got some quick snaps.
Having worked the entire night before the show doing last minute alterations and model fittings, the energy backstage definitely seemed even more insane, there was even more last minute hand sewing, pinning and shoe fixing (Those studs just wouldn’t stay on!) The models were amazing, how they put up with it having clothes ripped off and on them constantly I have no idea.
The show itself was beautiful. The contrast of St Tropez suntans, long blonde hair extensions and pastel colours with the pointy nipple bras, studded stilettos and heavy metal music made the show a complete Louise Goldin experience.

These shoes are so insane! I love them!
I had the best time working at Louise Goldin EVER! My favourite part of the internship was not only being able to work alongside Louise but also Panos Yiapanis, he is a genius and I may have even fallen in love with him a little bit. Panos truly understands Louise’s vision and they make a unbeatable team.
Sad to be leaving London and going back to Bristol, but I have my own collection to make!
